with the explosion of mod or hippie culture in the 60's, it was recognized that it was the people's responsibility to "read" the pm's (prime ministers), presidents, leaders of the world on a deeper level and not go by simply the words they present to the public. being a responsible citizen was hip and so mod culture read or clarified what the actual postition of a nation's pm or president was on the level of the people... power to the people, power to the people right on! one pm i am trying to get a read on its ehud olmert, the pm of israel. he's coming under great criticism by for his conduct of the war against hezbollah. personally i think, if one doesn't know how to conduct themselves in war, then they shouldn't be warring. so which pm's or leaders of the world are you trying to get a read on?
